Heralded by more than a fair share of people as the most beautiful shopping mall in the world, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, Italy, offers a breathtaking shopping experience under a windowed cast-iron roof that is vaguely reminiscent of Fremont Street in Las Vegas, just this place has class. With a wide selection of high-end merchandise from the likes of Massimo Dutti, Prada and Louis Vuitton, there are also many restaurants and bars, making this a prime location to spend an entire day browsing and socializing.
One very interesting thing to see at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is when people spin on a bull insignia in the center of the mall. Apparently spinning in the divot on the bull brings good luck, and people strolling through the mall, both tourists and locals alike, will stop momentarily to whirl in the name of fortune. For any reason, this spectacular mall shouldn’t be missed by anyone who finds his or her way to Milan.
